Ansell Professional Healthcare
Americas Web Site Privacy Notice

This statement discloses the online privacy practices for the Ansell Professional Healthcare Americas web site located at ("Web Site") and describes our online information collection, use and storage practices at this Web Site. This notice applies only to information we collect online at this Web Site, and not to any other information collection we may conduct whether online at one of the other Ansell web sites, through electronic mail, or offline. Please be sure to read this notice before using this Web Site or submitting information to us. Our privacy practices may change from time to time, so please check this area periodically for corresponding updates to this notice.

As with most web sites, Ansell tracks information in two ways. There is voluntary information that we request, and information that we track passively.

We actively solicit information from you during registration for sweepstakes, at the "contact us" form, at the request form for our "Source to Surgery" newsletter, at the Continuing Education area, and by inviting you to send us electronic mail messages. The amount and type of information we collect varies from area to area, and includes e-mail address, street address, and telephone number, as well as certain demographic information that will help us provide you with better products.

In order to properly maintain this Web Site, we (like all sites on the Internet) passively track navigational information, for example through use of session cookies.

Ansell generally does not require you to provide personally identifiable information to visit and use this Web Site; however, in order to participate in some activities such as our online contests and sweepstakes, you must provide us with the information requested. We may ask during those processes for additional information not required to complete your request. Optional information will be noted at the specific area. If you decide not to provide us with the required information, we will unable to process your request. For example, if you do not provide us with your contact information when registering for an online sweepstakes, we will be unable to notify you if you are selected as a potential winner.

We use the information you provide to respond to your request (enter you in a sweepstakes, for example), to notify you about new features, products or services, to notify you or enter you in contests or sweepstakes, to customize your experience on this Web Site, to improve our features, products and services, to send you surveys or questionnaires, and for other business purposes. In order to provide you with this Web Site, and with our products and services, we may share your information with our agents or partners. For example, when hosting sweepstakes we often work with promotion companies with whom we share your information. These companies collect your information on our behalf, share the information with us, and also retain that information for their own purposes. In addition to sharing your information with our partners and agents, we may also share your information with certain select vendors whose products or services we believe you may find of interest. We may also provide aggregated information about our users to third parties. If you do not want us to share your personally identifiable information with unrelated third parties, you may notify us at

We use the information we track during your visit (such as IP addresses and browser type) to administer this Web Site, to provide you with the product or service you requested, as well as to create better products and services by analyzing trends. For example, we use this information to determine which areas of this Web Site are more popular, to determine fluctuation of visitor numbers from week to week, to diagnose problems with our server, and to improve your web experience by determining the fastest route for your computer to use in connecting to this Web Site.

We strive to provide you with as many choices and as much control as possible regarding the personal information you have provided to us. We have created mechanisms to provide you with the following control over your information:

You may send us an e-mail message at, to request access to, to correct, or to delete any personal information that you have provided us.

You should review this privacy notice carefully, because if you do not agree with our practices, your ultimate choice is not to use this Web Site. Remember, by using any part of this Web Site, you accept and agree to our privacy practices. If we update this privacy notice, your continued use of this Web Site (following the posting of the revised notice) means that you accept and agree to the terms of the revised privacy notice.

Ansell takes its responsibility to protect your personal information seriously. In addition to technical measures such as firewalls, we have also implemented procedural protection measures such as restricting physical access to your information in our offices, securing that information behind locked cages and training and disciplining employees who fail to follow our company's privacy policies.

This Web Site is not intended for, nor do we believe it is appealing to, children under the age of 13. Ansell does not knowingly solicit or collect information from children under the age of 13. If Ansell learns that it has been provided with information from someone under 13, Ansell will destroy that information. We encourage parents to take an active role in ensuring that their children do not send information about themselves anywhere on the Internet unknowingly, and suggest that they use software tools or online services to ensure a safe Internet experience for their children.
